In today’s charged environment, it’s hard to avoid the terms “fake news”, “alternative facts” and “misinformation”.
It’s growing ever more difficult to know what to believe, who to trust and what their motivation in this environment of many competing points of view.
Sandy Springs Together wants to serve as more than a source of information and knowledge. We want you to trust us and the information we share with you.
Ultimately, we want our neighbors to be informed on key items that are important and impact the quality of life here in the city of Sandy Springs.
The Resource Library
In the years since we first launched Sandy Springs Together, we’ve learned more and more about the important role that housing plays in every aspect of a person’s life.
We also learned about the racial inequities in our housing system and are committed to raising awareness, sharing potential solutions, and keeping our community informed.
With the launch of our official Research Library, you now have access to many of the sources of information that we have shared with you on affordable housing, racial equity and so much more.
With hundreds of resources, such as articles, studies, reports, and more, we’ve put together a platform for you to dive deeper into this important group of topics.
How The Research Library Works
The Research Library is categorized by type content and allows for you to search based on keywords. Each source is summarized too, allowing you to quickly find out if the source is what you’re looking for.
As we continue to share more content with you, this list will only continue to grow. And as new topics rise in popularity, we will publish new sources of information for you to engage with and learn more about.
Also, as you probably know, we publish relevant, topical Blogs each and every week that discuss issues related to Sandy Springs. Many of our Blogs use the sources found in the Research Library, so we’ve included our Blogs in the library, as well.
At Sandy Springs Together, we place a great deal of emphasis on providing information that is both accurate and trustworthy.
In some cases, we may present a topic that includes multiple different viewpoints. We will always try our best to include every viewpoint of an issue so that everyone in our community feels heard and validated.
But also, by reading more than one article or viewpoint, you allow yourself to gain an understanding of the many implications and ramifications of certain actions or programs.
Again, everyone deserves to have their voices heard. But the better informed you are, the more information you’ll have to add to the conversation.
So, use this new tool on our website. Become informed, so you can be empowered.
